"Even if you couldn't care less about weddings—
and hate anything with pink and/or confections on
its cover—you still shouldn't sniff at prolific writer
Jen Doll's book about wedding experiences and how they shape and re-shape definitions of love and commitment. If the topic doesn't grab you, Doll's
wit likely will."
CNN's "18 Books to Watch for in 2014"
"Save the Date is a hilarious, open-eyed account of one woman's life as a wedding guest. Doll chronicles the good, the bad, and the drunken with wit and insight into the state of modern marriage."
J. Courtney Sullivan, author of
The Engagements and Maine
"Reading Save the Date is like attending a wedding with the coolest plus-one ever. Jen Doll is witty, charming, and can see through all the BS of the wedding culture while still having a fun time with it."
Drew Magary, author of
Someone Could Get Hurt and The Postmortal
"Jen Doll's sharp, funny true tales of guesthood acknowledge—at last—that attending other people's weddings is a unique rite of passage in itself. Save the Date is a welcome companion."
— Wendy McClure, author of The Wilder Life
"Ive heard nothing but raves about this compendium from Doll ... She's so funny that a publicist reading the manuscript was reportedly given hell by her airplane seatmates for laughing so hard."
— Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal
"In her hilarious debut book, Jen Doll tells us about life as a perpetual wedding guest, and the things she's learned and observed along the way."
Flavorwire’s "15 Most Anticipated Books of 2014"
"Jen Doll address relationships, romance, weddings, and love with the sharp and intuitive eye of a psychotherapist, and the impeccable comic timing of, well, an impeccably good comedian. Not only that, she coins a phrase that is not only brilliant, but important: 'My unemployment jeans.' Save the Date is a self-examination of the single gal at its cleverest, funniest best."
